    The Grapevine (5/29/20): SmackDown Bro

    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the founded and unfounded rumors abound the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!
    • Matt Riddle is headed to SmackDown soon. He had already filmed a promo introducing him to the blue brand, and his loss to Timothy Thatcher on this week's NXT was to write him off. Talks of moving him to SmackDown or RAW were done as early as before WrestleMania, and were put on hold at that time. The move is to keep him happy by letting him make more money than he would if he were still in NXT. The move may be done as soon as this week's episode. (Source: Wrestling Observer Radio)
    We say: Not like there's too much of a difference now between all the brands, but NXT's losing a really good guy in Matt Riddle. Let's hope he's not squandered on the other shows.
    • On a related note, the Timothy Thatcher teeth injury may have been worked. While the teeth he spat out after the rebound kick seemed real, there is some speculation that it may have just been part of the storylines as Thatcher's smile didn't seem to have changed at the end of the match.

    We say: It did seem like a nod to his notoriously gnarly teeth, and we hope he's okay.
